Austin Board of Realtor's Public Policy Agenda, 2023 policy positions..

GVM question for ABOR, " What is ABOR's current position on shorter term rentals of less than 31 days in length, in regards to property owners ?  Hi George,   Great question! On the local level, ABoR believes cities should use existing tools at their disposal to address nuisance properties, crack down on bad actors, and protect the health and safety of tenants, property owners, and community members. STR regulations infringe on a property owner’s ability to conduct business without government interference. In addition, these regulations are often duplicative, ineffective, and intrusive to property owners and tenants.   ABoR doesn’t advocate at the State level, so we do not have a position on state activity as it relates to STRs. If you would like more information, I’d be happy to connect you with one of our counterparts at Texas REALTORS® so you can discuss further. If you have any questions, please let me know!   Best,   Elizabeth ABOR employee
